further details....

More data and fewer resources mean you need help to get your data to a place you can use. ZENTRA Cloud works together with the ZL6 to start the analysis process for you. It aggregates all your data in one easy place and automatically graphs it, in near-real time. Now, see important trending information as it happens, instead of having to comb through imported spreadsheets. Near-real-time visualization of several different data streams means you can easily check on—and share—current site conditions, such as recharge from the last rain event or plant available water.

Pull near-real-time data up at a conference to illustrate a point, or share current data with your students to teach them how to model evapotranspiration. ZENTRA Cloud does all the data legwork, with minimal effort, so you and your students can spend less time collecting data and more time publishing it. ZENTRA Cloud and the ZL6 data logger work together to simplify your ability to visualize, manage, and share measurements from up to six different types of sensors. With METER’s multi-parameter sensors, you can potentially visualize dozens of different near-real-time measurements at once.

Add more ZL6’s to your site, and you can track even more measurements. Remote data management means you can reconfigure sensors while sitting at your desk. Use the GPS mapping feature to illustrate to a colleague or a class how a site is configured. And simplified sharing of near-real-time data makes it easier for your colleagues or students to see exactly what you see, when you want to see it.
